moments in washington. in late 2010, democrats and republicans started a fight over extending the bush tax cults for wealthy americans ultimately president obama signed an extension of the tax cuts for all taxpayers. now, four months later, the president and congressional leaders cut a budget deal that cut $38 billion in federal spending for the year. that agreement, if you recall, came less than two hours before the government would have shut down. in august of the same year, the white house and congress were in the same position they're in now, bumping up against that debt ceiling. that provision of the deal created the fiscal mess which we have still not solved. and congress closed out 2011 with the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits two days before christmas. he had another massive fight on a relatively modest stopgap measure that both sides had largely agreed on. of course i don't need to remind you about the fiscal cliff fight we just got done with. congress could not come to an agreement even as massive spending cuts and tax hikes were scheduled to take effect. but congress s

to washington to meet with people in the defense department and president obama. obviously afghanistan is vitally important as well being the source of the 9/11 attacks as well as being in between pakistan and i ran both of which are problem mats i can 23r9 united states. what people may not recognize -- there were actually no u.s. force there is until president obama gave his speech on the first of december 2009 at west point where there will be a surge of 30,000 troops many of whom went to this area of kandahar and this area of hellman both army troops and marines to be able to address the terrorist threat. again, they did a comprehensive approach as understand iraq and here are the graphs that are relatively similar to those that i showed you. the difference is from 2008 to 2012 in afghanistan, in afghanistan the fighting is mostly in the summer, these are the summers of 2008 to the beginning of 2012 where you see a decrease in the actual year over year violence in afghanistan through the application of both the american military forces, our allied military forces and especially the
to president obama urging him to do whatever he can to sidestep congress and increase the debt ceiling. but he cannot legally or constitutionally do that. john boehner reacts by saying washington must stop spending money it doesn't have. >>> speaking of sequester spending cuts, defense department is gearing up, so is homeland security. and the tsa. did you get your paycheck today? notice something missing? the payroll tax holiday is over. will this middle class tax hike really damage the economy? "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up tonight, a developing story. four democratic senators sent a letter to president obama late this afternoon. they want him to use any means necessary to raise the debt ceiling without republican house spending cuts. that's right. cnbc's eamon javers has the details. >> reporter: let me get right to exactly what that quartet of senators said. in their letter to president obama which was viewed widely as shoring up his left flank in the political debate over the debt ceiling. what they wrote was "we believe you must be willing to take any lawful steps to
obama, and to the kick in the pants of john boehner, it seems that you are the voice of america's frustration with washington, and as a resident of a city who knows all too well to rebuild in the wake of catastrophe i know that the people of new jersey are grateful to have you as a champion and you can e tell by the 73% approval rating and even more impressive as governor of a blue state, you get 62% approval of the democrats and 70% of women and 69% among people of color which makes you a shoe in for re-election this year, and no doubt all of the love has you feeling like it is all aboard the christie train and next stop the white house. but i need you the pump the brake, because your ability to lead people through the aftermath of a disaster is important, but it does not qualify you to be president of the united states. just ask rudy giuliani, and the "time" magazine line had it right, you are the master of disaster, but disaster struck long before hurricane sandy came ashore and hope you do a better job of presiding over the state's storm recovery than presiding over new jers
. and timely to this whole debt debate going on in washington, the same president who supported saying the constitution allows him to raise the debt ceiling on his own, again, congress be damned. add it up, i'm telling you, barack obama is doubling down. and here's the kicker. with plenty of compliant democrats in congress to help. but those democrats might regret what they're aiding and abetting, because they're the ones who'll be fumbling and fuming. when nancy pelosi pushes the 14th amendment to give the power to bypass congress, she is giving him the power to bypass her too. you don't need a trillion dollar magic coin to realize this is nothing less than a high stakes power grab. now, it's not unusual for presidents of either party to try. it is very unusual for so many in both parts to lay down and let him do it. all right, here to hash it out, constitutional expert ilya shapiro and sabrina schafer as well as "the wall street journal"'s steve moore. steve, a disturbing series of events, to put it mildly. >> no question about it, neil. and, look, we have a three-branch system of go
washington post" is reporting that democratic senate leaders are advising the white house to go arc comed do that and bypass congress on this issue. i'll show everybody this letter to president obama and they advise him to take any lawful steps to avoid default with congressional approval and they talk about the 14th amendment and is there any way for the white house to avoid another fight like this with the congress completely. >> they've been writing about this letter that senator reid said to the president and if the president if they want to can certainly direct the treasury to ignore the debt ceiling and then basically say go ahead and sue me and see if anybody does and go to the core process and i don't think that's something the president wants to do that he doesn't want to evoke this 14th amendment and that's the shorthand used for it and i think what's fascinating here and you have members of congress, ceding their institutional authority given that congress is more popular these days and i think there's probably some sort of middle ground that can be found with mitch mcconnell and
plans to deliver his gun-safety recommendations to president obama as early as next tuesday. erica? >> kristen welker at the white house this morning, thank you. >>> john harwood is cnbc's chief washington correspondent. good morning. >> good morning, erica. >> when we hear that vice president biden could deliver his recommendations on tuesday, obviously ahead of schedule, not what we're used to in washington, what are we expecting he will be telling the president? >> well, there are a few things that the task force is looking at. and there's a hierarchy of possibility among those things. universal background checks is one of the things that they've looked at that has a significant possibility of coming true because it doesn't have the specter of taking people's guns away, which is what gun rights advocates make the argument about. the second is the high-capacity magazines that go into some of these guns. there is some bipartisan support for that. and then finally, the question of the assault weapons ban which existed in the 1990s and expired. democrats have considered it too polit
